once again i'm trying my html again. lessee if this works. these are pics of what's left of Cameron Louisiana after hurricane Rita, Cameron is one of my holding points:

this one is of the turning basin south of lake charles, you can see where a couple of city blocks were.....


expanded view:


note below the blue fuel tank next to the middle of the runway. it used to be about 50 yards south to fuel "my/our" heleos (i've learned to respect and understand what these off-shore guys do. I may be fixed wing and contract for these guys for radio contact but i realized how important it was last month when i had to take "lats and longs" from a sick pilot. It was the most chilling radio conversation ever for me. hmmmm i sense a new thread coming on....)

I wonder what in the world those guys were thinking?

As for the Cameron photo, it's very impressive. We had our share not long ago too. Tropical Storm "Stan" hit our Southern Coast and a vast  regions of our highlands... I have some photos that I took while flying over the disaster areas two or three weeks ago. As soon as I return to the "motherland" (I'm in Costa Rica at the moment) I will post them here.

Cheers...

Here is what I am thinking:

You may say or think about the FAA whatever you like, but I am glad these things don't happen here too much...

I ferreted around and found a couple on this devilish laptop that I'm using. Here's the first. Taken after taking off from Retalhuleu, in the Southern (Pacific) Coast. We were in a Basler BT-67 of the Guatemalan Air Force...

This one shows a couple of Helos of the Guatemalan Air Force at Quetzaltenango (Highlands) during the emergency... These and two more were flying food and water to the disaster zones...

hijxn is using HTML code for loading them from another server. I, instead, am uploading mine to your server with the "attachment" option that appears under "Additional Options" while posting...

Well, a correction first: Hijnx is only displaying the photos. They are not in your server and he only references them from here with HTML code.

On the other hand, you can upload images to your server, first by browsing for the file you want to upload. This is done by clicking in the "Browse" button and navigating in the window that pops up. Once you have found the file, click once on it and then hit OK. Last step is to click on the "post" button.

Try to upload small images only (640 X 400 pixels max) since if the photo is bigger than the screen, the forum format won't be displayed properly...
